Dust Containment Booth

Dustron Series

The Dust Control Booth From The Industry Pioneers of Push/Pull Regain Air

Dustron DB Series

The Original Ultra-Efficiency Cartridge Dust Collector Booth

The Filter 1 Advantage

The first dust booth to implement the innovative regain of air principle, the Filter 1 Dustron increases worker comfort and visibility in the critical work areas. Capitalizing on the multiplied ventilation effect of "pushing" clean air out across the front of the booth as the blower "pulls" contaminated air into the filters, the Dustron provides velocities of 400/800 FPM at the center zone of the booth where the dust is being generated. With Filter 1's fully implemented, fully adjustable Push/Pull Regain Air, the Dustron enhances the conditions and productivity of operations within the booth.

Powerful Performance

Every feature of the dust collection section of the Dustron is designed for efficiency:

Noise Control

Dustron Dust Collection Booth

The Filter 1 Dustron has built-in sound absorption benefiting the workers inside as well as outside the booth:

Enhanced Work Environment

The Dustron is designed to provide optimal conditions for large industrial operations where dust and/or noise are a problem.


The Filter 1 Dustron Environmental Control Booth is utilized for a broad spectrum of industrial contaminants and processes, including:

  • Welding
  • Sanding
  • Grinding
  • Chipping
  • Buffing
  • Air Arcing
  • Plasma Cutting
  • Mixing
  • Finishing
  • Polishing

When live sparks are created by grinding on steel or welding, our fire-retardant cartridges should be further protected by the optional spark trap and solid state spark detector.

Dustron DPB Series

Multi-Stage Panel Filter Booth

A Practical Solution for Everyday Jobs

Does your operation generate less than 100 lbs. of particulate in a year? The Dustron DPB Panel Booth is a versatile, easy-to-operate control booth for light to moderate loads of dust, smoke, or fumes.

Flexible Filter System: Multi-stage, multi-efficiency 24" x 24" x 4" pleated media filters can be configured to fit a variety of industrial jobs. Available media ranges from inexpensive, lower efficiency pre-filters to high-efficiency HEPA quality filters.

Industrial standard size 24" x 24" x 4" nominal pleated filters can include:


  • Chevron
  • Impingers / Washable Impingers
  • Metal Mesh
  • Merv 3

Secondary Filters

  • Merv 3 - Merv 17 Filter Media
  • Microglass or Synthetic
  • ASHRAE or HEPA Safety Filters
  • Polyester
  • Nanofiber

Effective Dust Capture: The Dustron DPB uses direct-drive, backward inclined blowers for quiet operation as well as high static pressures. In combination with multiple pleated filters, the direct-drive blower gives the DPB a low air-to-media ratio, resulting in outstanding flow and velocity, and also an excellent dust-holding capacity.

Easy Maintenance: Disposable panel filters are easy to replace, and also easy to re-configure for different applications. A monitoring gauge indicates when filters need to be changed.

OSHA Compliance: The Dustron Panel Filter Booth provides the media selection and configuration to meet or exceed OSHA requirements for Fiberglass, Hexavalent Chromates, Lead, Beryllium, Composites, Wood, Plastic, and Metals.

A Containment / Collection Booth With Cost Economy

For industrial applications with low-to-moderate dust loads, the Dustron DPB offers a cost-effective approach to comprehensive dust control.

Reduced Initial Costs: The DPB Dust Booth offers the advantages of booth containment and collection without the expense of heavy-duty self-cleaning cartridge systems; there is no costly plumbing such as valves and headers, or high-end controls such as timers and solenoids.

Reduced Operating Costs: The DPB does not require compressed air, and the high-efficiency blower wheel, combined with the best new technology filter media, creates a very low pressure drop, resulting in optimal flow and velocity with the lowest possible energy cost. In addition, the Dustron DPB utilizes inexpensive, readily available, standard industry panel filters.

Classic Dustron Features: An Added Plus

Available options on the Dustron DPB include:

  • The "Push / Pull" Regain Air System, enhancing capture velocity up to 800 FPM in the working zone.
  • Environmental booth constructed out of 18-gauge galvanized sheet metal
  • Sound Insulation
  • Dust-tight Fluorescent Lighting
Typical Applications
  • Welding
  • Sanding
  • Woodworking
  • Overspray
